Hmm. If libusb-win32 only supports the 0.x libusb API,
it will be stuck with libftdi 0.x?

So, forgive my ignorance, the key difference between
"libusb on Windows" and "libusb-win32" right now
is the implemented API version, right?

Or will there ever be an libusb-win32 version
implementing the libusb 1.x API?

The idea was to replace libftdi 0.x with libftdi-1 soon,
so maybe the " - Home of libusb" link might be enough.
